Hello you all!!!

I haven't posted one of my projects on craftster for over a year and a half now.

[Edited/Deleted text; 09/25/08]

Soo now, i'm back on craftster, having my username changed (for the nosy ones - you can stalk my profile for my old name and posts haha) ...and here is the first bag in a row i want to show you: my reversible cut-out handle bag!

I am really in love with the fabrics, they just brighten up my day whenever i use this bag! The strap is removable, so i can attach it to both sides or wear the whole thing without it!
It fits a A4-writing pad (don't know paper standards in the US). The cut-out handle part is pretty stiff, i used heavyheavyweight-interfacing. When there are no big papers or books in, the handlepart is just floppy which i like a lot!




So, i hope you like my bag and appreciate any comment!

EDIT: TUTORIAL i've made for Merry120!
Well, my first language is German .. be prepared to read some sentences more than once. The pics are very large, too large for posting here - just click the thumbnails to see the goodies! Feel free to download them to your desktop for better use!

Great bag, but I really wanted to say rock on for making *yourself* happy with what you're crafting.  I think it's awesome that people do make money with crafts, but if it starts to suck your soul away and make you unhappy, then that's no good.  So good for you for getting your crafting groove back.  Smiley

Thanks a lot for your comments and encouragement!

What i've forgot to say: i DO think it's great when people manage to sell their creations, it's just not working for me! Hope nobody got me wrong Smiley
